An impressive win by one of NZ's new Seniors, FM Bob Smith :clap: :clap:
Especially as he had at least first-equal in the bag with round to spare - and could take a draw to win outright. :clap: :clap:

Bob Smith is not a Senior until January 1st 2014, when (I'm told by our chief grader) about 90 people will be added to the Senior category in NZ (and that is a lot - in fact I think our rating list will become about 2/3 Junior and 1/3 Senior, and nothing much in-between!).

My mistake, thanks for the clarification Helen (I thought it had happened on July 1 but I wasn't relying on an official source). It looks like many of the 'Fischer Boomers' including myself will all be hitting Senior status together!

I'm referring to the change in FIDE criteria for 2014. NZ follows the FIDE definition. We're planning to introduce a Veterans category as well (65).

Big thanks to Ian Kennedy, Keong and Hilton. Nice of Hilton to be the 'spare person' which saved a number of travelled players the BYE.

...We're planning to introduce a Veterans category as well (65).
Yes, I read the relevant entry on the Calendar the other day: "There will probably be a Veterans prize for those reaching the age of 65 or more in 2014" but perhaps this could be reworded to indicate that it's for chess achievement rather than longevity ;)

heligan
31-07-2013, 09:24 AM
Again, we are just following FIDE criteria (for World Veteran & Senior Championships). See http://www.fide.com/component/handbook/?view=article&id=154

I quote:
"There shall be two categories; age 50 and age 65"
